Wood floors are the staple of the flooring industry. Solid hardwood floors have been used for centuries because of their natural beauty and durability while engineered wood flooring has recently become popular due to its ability to be installed below ground level while maintaining a real wood look and feel. Unlike laminate flooring hardwood floors can be refinished in order to bring back their natural warmth and luster. Solid floors can last a lifetime maintaining their beauty for years to come making them a timeless investment that, like ceramic tile, adds value to your home.
One main appeal of hardwood is the variety of species available including Oak, Maple, Cherry, Hickory, Pecan, Pine, Beech, Birch, Walnut, and more. While laminate floors can mimic the looks of these woods, only hardwood has the natural warmth and feel of each in both finished and unfinished options. With the wide range of species available hardwood flooring offers the perfect match to any room in any home. Both engineered and solid floors are available in strip, plank, and parquet styles to achieve the best look for their environment. Hardwood floors offer several installation choices ranging from nail, staple, or glue down methods as well as some free floating options depending on your needs.
If you are considering purchasing a lasting floor that adds value to your home hardwood flooring is the way to go. With its wide range of installation options, species, and styles to choose from there is a hardwood floor that is right for you.
